8 Abandoned Theme Parks Abroad “Open” for Exploration Call it exoticism: theme parks outside the US seem just a smidgen creepier than those we grew up visiting. Safety guidelines are questionable, attractions are a bit lees planned-out, and themes are chosen with a decidedly laissez-faire attitude. Although these factors might be a detriment to theme parks while they’re still in business, they certainly increase foreign parks’ appeal to urban explorers with an eye for the bizarre once they’ve been abandoned.

We can go ahead and pack it in now, because the Internet has reached its final form. And it happened in the way that I think we all knew it would: With a massive picture of 493 Pokemon drawn as anime girls. At this point, the response is less “why?” than “of course it is.” But I’m not going to lie: As strange and undeniably fetishistic as this is, it’s also kind of awesome, especially the thoroughness of including every single Pokemon to be seen in the games until the newly released Black and White era — including all 28 different versions of Unown, which are of course drawn as sexy maids.
